Green Lantern Annual #3

And so we finally come to the end of Godhead.  Thank goodness.  I love the Green Lanterns, I really do...but man, this has just dragged on and on, and it was more or less pointless in the end.

You know who the real hero of Godhead turned out to be? Blackhand.  Without him, they wouldn't have won.  Hal and Blackhand are hanging out at the Source wall, taunting Orion, when it finally occurs to Blackhand, that all those people stuck in the wall are dead...more or less...and therefore his to command.  Who saw THAT coming? 

Also everyone knows that Kyle isn't actually dead, which is nice. The new New Guardians are still proving to be almost as stupid as the old Guardians, and High Father is busy romping though Kyles brain.  Kyle manages to prove to High Father that he is being just as awful as Darkseid, which is actually something that practically everyone has been pointing out, but apparently High Father is a bit thick.  So, Kyle is the White Lantern again.  This is nice, except that now New Genesis is busy falling down, so Hal does his heroic thing and saves it and oh...St. Walker is hopeful again. 

High Father thanks Hal for being the bestest that there is, Guy makes inappropriate comments, and they all fly off home to Mogo, who gets his ring back, and there is a more or less happy ending...well except for all the people that the New Gods killed.  But hey, mistakes happen.  And Sinestro flies off in a bit of a snit. 

Just in time for DC to kill all of the books in a couple of months, which has me a bit nervous.  Now, could we please just give up on all of the book-spanning crossovers for a while and have the Lanterns actually do...lanterny things?  Hang out together?  I really would like a chance to catch my breath before the next giant crossover.

No explanation of why the most powerful weapon in the universe had no effect on the New Gods?

Um...they rather forgot about that part. The whole thing really didn't make much sense at all anyway. And it all resolved itself waaaay too easily.

Power-mad former Good Guy realizes that he's become the very thing he is fighting against! Hugs and Kittens save the day!

Are there going to be repercussions for Black Hand getting the people in the Source Wall moving again? Are they free, or still stuck in the wall? Did he lay them to rest, or are they shuffling around? It seems like living corpses are probably not a good thing to have in the Source Wall, but maybe they'd convince people to stop messing with it. trick people into thinking whatever is on the other side is what created them. People tend to run from zombies.

They did rather leave that hanging. The dead people from the Source wall, come crashing in and destroy New Genesis, and High Father realizes he's become a douche, and gives the White Lantern power back to Kyle, who is the only one to go behind the Source wall, and somehow...there is a big swoosh, and then Hal and the rest of the Lanterns save the city from crashing...or something. And HIgh Father apologizes, which apparently makes up for all the dead people or something.

The don't say what happened to Black Hand, who seriously was the one who saved their butts...nor the former dead people on the Source wall. It's all left hanging.
